Avocado Recall March 2019 –
Henry Avocado Corporation has voluntarily recalled California-grown whole avocados sold in bulk at retail stores because of the potential contamination of Listeria Monocytogenes.
Details of the Henry Avocado Recall
They are issuing this recall because of positive test results on environmental samples taken during an inspection at the packing facility. No illnesses have been reported.
The Products Recalled:
“California-grown conventional and organic avocados — were packed at Henry Avocado’s packing facility in California and distributed in Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin.
